Dianne Feinstein’s Husband Wins Near-Billion Dollar California ‘High Speed Rail’ Contract

To the surprise of absolutely no one familiar with the ways of Corruptifornia, the one-party state completely in the hands of the Democrats, a consortium whose lead firm is controlled by Richard Blum, husband of Sen. Dianne Feinstein, was awarded a nearly billion-dollar contract for the construction of the first phase of the so-called high-speed rail line to link San Francisco and Los Angeles. Those paying attention to the project call it the “half-fast” rail line because it will share trackage with conventional commuter rail trains in the sprawling Los Angeles and San Francisco areas, lowering its average speed to levels achieved by American railways a century ago.

Wow , a good way to keep my friend Trey Gowdy busy. He will have a field day with this.

Wonder what Elizabeth Warren will have to say, since she was worried about the possibility of Trump making some $$$ from public housing projects...A conflict of interest is a conflict of interest; unless it's a Democrat?

Did you see the Democrats grilling Tom Price and Betsy DeVos for stock trades and not having to use student loans for education? Makes confirmation hearings laughable and meaningless. Double standard folks.

Hang them in the public square.
They dont' give a rats ace what "we, the people" see, hear, or think about any of the blatantly corrupt and obviously wrong things they do on a REGULAR BASIS.
It is NOT "public service" --- it's burying your head in the public trough and sucking it dry.
Hang them. Quickly.

The only other possible competitor for the bid must have been nasty pelosi's hubby. Alas soon they will both be gone.

8:03...Correct! That's how she & her hubby make their money as well as buying up foreclosed mortgages & flipping 'em for more bucks. BUT, the sauce for the goose isn't for the gander...

I hope this was done as a legitimate RFD and his company won the low bid. I doubt it, though.

You should be more concerned about Great Leader's corruption. Still owns Raytheon stock - wants more bombs built. Continually goes to his commercial properties, essentially promoting them. Gaining foreign favor - China recently granted Trump Organization branding exclusivity. That's just the tip of the iceberg. Enjoy the rape of our country.

Thank God for Donald J Trump, GOD intervened in this election and appointed him. The FEINSTEINS are known $$$$$$$ opportunists. Remember how convenient it was when Mayor Moscone and Supervisor Harvey Milk were assassinated? and Dianne became Mayor, then she followed the pathway of Hillary Clinton ... including? hmmmmm Didn't the shooter, Dan White, mysteriously commit suicide? hmmmm? hmmmm?

It's been common knowledge for years, long before we left California 5 years ago. He got a contract to start the planning then and it included service to Las Vegas. He has already collected hundreds of millions on the project. Why don't you investigate it yourself. There is plenty of information on it.

Nearly a BILLION dollars doesn't sound like the low bid! Is there really such a great demand for more rail service between LA & San Fran? How many people will ride this? Will it be profitable? Wouldn't that money be better spent doing dam maintenance, for instance? Or forest maintenance perhaps? Or helping the homeless that are plentiful in your cities?

Profit? This won’t even break even.

how about Nancy Pelosi money laundering thru her Goat Hill Pizza, registered in Panama under the name Philip DeAndrade—a former government staff member under Pelosi—is listed as the owner of Goat Hill Pizza. His email is also Philip@GoatHill.com. Could it possibly be? Could Philip and Nancy Pelosi be one in the same? Undoubtedly, yes. This little scheme Pelosi’s pulling is called a “front”. Legitimate business in the front, shady illegal activity in the back.

Private airlines that use government airports, designed built, maintained and run by the government! Yes so private. Like private ports (There aren't any!) for foreign ships to dock here. Buses that get grants to operate, have tax free fuel, are foreign owned with American names. That run on government highways, to government terminals. Tell me about this private system!

Anonymous said...

Yes if it's not built we can spend billions and billions more on government airports and highways instead. For those private airlines and foreign owned bus lines with American names like Greyhound.

And what happened to Price? Trump fired him for effectively corrupt practices.

However, whether you like it or not Richard Blum is not the senior Senator from California, so your comparison to Trump cabinet members is a massive false equivalence.

Want to go after the spouses of elected officials enriching themselves while their husband or wife sits in office, go to. Please attack Feinstein, but it's hardly a one political party enterprise.

Not mentioned is this train was on the ballot and Californians voted it down. They said no, we don't want it. But it's being built anyway. So why did we even vote on it ? Democrats in California just do whatever they want anyway. Gay marriage, Sanctuary cities, illegals allowed to vote, increased gas taxes, etc..

I saw one commentator ask if anyone actually tried to verify any of the claims that are being made. Certainly, some of the accusations are so absurd as to shame the authors. Those of you who have hitched their wagons to the old fart in the White House apparently will say anything to avoid facing reality. You don’t know Blum’s firm is not the best company for the job they bid on. The fast rail project will cost way more than 1 billion so don’t get the idea that Blum got the whole contract..
Does California need the fast rail ? Maybe you haven’t driven the highways between San Diego, LA, and San Francisco. Riding a fast train makes a lot of sense due to the overburdened highways. I wonder why California must put so much time, money and energy to achieve a fuel efficient manner of transportation. Gee, Japan has had a Bullet Train from Tokyo to Kyoto for decades. Could it be that some Californians just don’t get the idea of progress? Jarvis was on TV this fall doing his reactionary best to pull back on the reins of our progressive society. Would he be happy with millions living in shanty towns as long as he doesn’t have to pay taxes. After all, why should he or his ilk share any responsibility for our society. Why can’t we all be rich like him and none of us will live in shacks. Yeah, they all think they made everything by themselves. Forget about public services and infrastructure that’s been there for them to take advantage of. Their rugged self made hombres.
That comment about Governor Brown starting the Camp Fire is so wrong on so many levels whoever wrot it should be embarrassed to display his/her bile in a public forum. There’s one obvious thing about trump and you trolls; they have taught you well to slander and demean any body who does not want this country to return to its racist intolerant ways. Foam at the mouth when you hear the label liberal but try not to forget that a great number of our country’s bravest men and women gave their lives for our core ideals of fairness and respect for others. That’s what America is all about.

Several days ago someone posted the fires in CA were done intentionally in order to move people out of the way, buy the land, and make way for this railway as Feinstein's husband secured the contract. Now this comes across my feed. Perhaps there's some truth to it?

I have friends that work for the U. S. Postal Service, that due to their spouse working as just a lowly Mail Handler are not allowed to bid for any type of contract like being what is called a Star Mail Transportation Trucker, that bids on a Mail Run that distributes Mail from one point to another in bulk. Where the winning bidder supplies a truck and driver for a scheduled route carrying Mail from one office to another. But just because his wife works as a Mail Clerk he is not allowed to make a simple living like that! But here’s this rich witch and her rich husband that gets away with a contract big of over a BILLION DOLLARS? How do these greedy animal sleep at night!

At least Amtrak uses federal rails already in existence and it goes everywhere. A high speed rail is pointless. We have telecommuting, fax and conference calls. A high speed rail is a decadent waste of resources for the impatient overprivileged.
